This image is an acrylic painting I painted for my wife for her 2009 birthday. It was painted totally during pre-school hours. I it was enjoyable to paint.
The painting was done with gold towers on the Palace of Machinery, for this site I digitally tinted them green, as I recently found out that this was their true color, but the picture didn't look `right,' so I digitally tinted them back (too lazy to redigitze the painting).
I veered from the B & W reference quite a bit, as the photo was badly airbrushed in the book, perhaps because of technical problems (photographs were still shot on glass back then).
The background includes the edifice to the dark ride- `Creation' on the Fair's Pike,. There are 17 people painted in this picture, but seven main ones. I particulary liked painting the sky.
